On the 29th July, the Headmaster, while on his way to
the printers with the proofs of this Magazine, collapsed and
Of his qualities and his devotion to the School, two mem-
bers of the Staff who knew him over a period of more than
twenty years, have written eloquently and their joint tribute
will be found within. Otherwise, apart from this brief edit-
orial, the Magazine is as he had completed it and to those who
have understanding, his personality will be found everywhere
within its pages.
With his passing, we can say with Tennyson :
"The old order changeth. yeilding place to new.
And Cod fulfils Himself in many ways
Lest one good custom should corrupt the world. "
It would be only fitting here to pay tribute also to two
other loyal members of the Staff who served the School for
many years: Miss Bowden and Major Howden have at last
retired. Between them they have a record of more than fifty
years service to the School. That they should enjoy a well
earned rest is the sincere wish of us all.
The Governors having honoured me on the 6th August
with the appointment to the Headmastership, may I take this
opportunity to offer a hearty welcome to Old Boys visiting the
School. The strength of the School is measured not so much
by numbers but by the quality of its products. The loyalty and
devotion of the Old Boys is a measure of this quality and in
them the spirit of the School continues long after they have
left its walls and fields. It is to them, therefore, that I make
this request. Take an active interest in School affairs, public-
ize it among your friends and, best of all, visit it whenever

THE REV. G. H. SCAKRETT, B.A.
Assistant Master, Lniversity School 1910-1935
Headmaster, University School 1935-1948
mite Mttt. CScouTC l^erbert #carrett, |^.^.
On July 29th, 1948, University School suffered a severe blow in
the passing of the Rev. G. H. Scarrett who had served first as Assist-
ant Master, and then as Headmaster, for 28 years.
The late Headmaster was bom in Leek, Staffordshire, England,
and taught at Alexander School, Broadstairs, and Skelsmergh School,
Margate before coming to Canada in 1911, where for three years he
taught at Bobcaygeon, Ontario.
During the Great War he served with commissioned rank in the
Prince Rupert Regiment, and some years later he took his Batchelor
of Arts degree at Queens University, Kingston.
In 1920 he came to University School from the Collegiate School
in Victoria, and immediately became a vital force in the life of the
institution he was to serve so well.
While his main sphere of influence was the classroom, he took an
active interest in all school activities, and the excellence of the School
Cadet Band over the years is attributable to his boundless enthusiasm
for this particular form of endeavour.
In 1935 he was appointed Headmaster. University School was
then at its lowest ebb: but for his unshakeable faith and indomitable
courage it could never have survived the critical years which fol-
Outside the School one of his main interests was Scouting, and
he was for some years Scout Commisioner.
Always a keen churchman he was in 1936 ordained in the Re-
formed Episcopal Church, and in 1945 his ordination in. the ministry
of the Church of England took place in Christ Church Cathedral,
Such, then, is a brief outline of his origin and life.
Of the man himself, of what he meant to the School and to those
who knew him long and well, a volume might be written. Yet, in
truth, no volume is needed, for his personality is stamped in letters
of brass, not only on the grounds and buildings of the School, but
also upon the very souls and characters of a thousand boys. A man
of iron-clad determination, believing steadfastly and irrefutably in an
unswerving line of Traditional Education, he never deviated a hair's
breadth from his chosen course. It is perhaps true to say that his
outstanding characteristic, well-nigh unique in these days of appease-
ment and compromise, was his utter constancy. Quod dixi, dixi. To
those who worked with him this inflexible constancy was a rock to
which they could cling with complete reliance in the frequent vortices
of School life. Perhaps, at times, his unbending rigour hid from
others the kinder side of the man: possibly he was glad that this was
so. Of his valour in all things, of his unremitting toil, of his mag-
nificent achievements, especially in the dark days of 1935, there is no
possible doubt. No other man who has been connected with the School
could have done what he did in the years of difficulty. His labours
during his Headmastership were unceasing; never for a moment did
he spare himself; it is beyond doubt that he gave his life to, and for,
Softness, weakness, half-measures were anathema to him. Only
too often the unbending rigour of his prescription would blind both
physician and patient to the honest, deeper longing for spiritual wel-
fare that lay below his stem control: but those who took the medicine
he gave lived to thank the giver and to know the cleansing powers
that were his.
Perhaps he was the last of an Old Regime: we may not look upon
his like again. Others may take his place in the years that lie before
the School. To fill his place is not within their power: his niche in
the line of Headmasters is his own and very bravely and very fully
has he filled it.
If he is in any need of an epitaph other than the stones of the
buildings and the lives of his boys, perhaps it might read

A Confirmation Service was held at St. Luke's on Tues-
day, May 11th. A large congregation attended the Service
at which Branson, Brown II, Brown III, Colquhoun, Laing,
Legg-Willis, Sundt II and Wilson, were confirmed by the Lord
Bishop of British Columbia. The candidates were presented
by the Headmaster after which his Lordship gave an appro-
priate address for the occasion.
The 42nd Founders' Day was observed as usual at the
School on October 7th. The Headmaster gave an address in
which he outlined the Founding of the School and its achieve-
ments throughout the years. He referred particularly to the
ideals of the Founders and the achievements of the Old Boys
of the School in the matter of War Service and expressed the
hope that the present boys would, in due time, be worthy suc-
On November 11th, the Armistice Day Service was held
at 10:45 in the Front Hall. The Headmaster took the Service
which was attended by all the boys and jnembers of the staff.
Capt. Harvey's last letter written to the boys in 1914 was read
as well as the names of those who lost their lives in the two
Wars. FollowinK the usual prayers and intercessions, the
School Wreath was laid on the Honour Roll by Hodgkinson.
The Service closed at 11:00 with the sounding of the Last
Post by the trumpeters of the Cadet Corps Band after which
the boys paid their respects before the Honour Roll, leaving
by the front door.
"The Spirit" has finally gone into dignified retirement
after many years of faithful service and, with a quizzical eye,
watches a visiting tractor tow the "cherubim" round the field.
The driveway in front of the School buildings has been
greatly improved by the addition of kerbs which add to the
neatness of the approach. Further additions are being made.
As usual, Mr. Beaumont kindly offered the School a picnic
on his launch. Our thanks are due to him: the fact that the
weather prevented the picnic in no way lessens our gratitude
to this good friend.
Boys of the upper forms were lucky in having the oppor-
tunity of seeing Macbeth, performed at the Royal Victoria by
Donald Wolfitt's London Company. Such treats come all too
seldom. They also attended a performance of Amateur Dra-

casion of the wedding of T. H. The Princess Elizabeth and the
Duke of Edinburgh.
We extend our best wishes to Commodore W. B. Creery,
C.B.E., R.C.N. (1910-1914), who is leaving his command at
H.M.C.S. Royal Roads to take up an appointment at Ottawa.
We shall miss his frequent visits to the School.

The 42nd Annual Speech Day was held on Friday, June
18th. The Rev. F. H. Cosgrave, formerly Provost and Vice-
Chancellor of Trinity College, Toronto, addressed the visitors
and boys and presented the prizes for the year.
The Headmaster welcomed a large gathering of parents
and visitors, some of whom had come from a considerable dis-
tance to be present for the ceremony. In his Report, he re-
ferred to the excellent showing made by the boys in the De-
partmental Examinations last year and commented on all the
Activities during the year. He made special refere-nce to the
outstanding success of the Cadet Corps, Shooting, Rugby Foot-
ball, Cricket, Boxing and Gymnastics. He then introduced
and welcomed the guest speaker, The Rev. Dr. Cosgrave, who
addressed the boys reminding them of the purpose of School
life and, now that their School days were over, to put into
practice the vital things they had learned while at school.
Mr. F. E. Winslow, O.B.E., Chairman of the Board of
Governors, thanked Dr. Cosgrave for his excellent address
and for its message and inspiration.

As usual the Annual School Sports were held on the first
Saturday in June, this year, on June 5th. The weather was
ideal for the occasion.
Competition, especially in the Open events, was keen.
There were no records broken as the Track was unusually
heavy for this time of the year.
About five hundred guests, parents, Old Boyr. and friends
of the School attended. Following the first half of the pro-
gramme, tea was served as usual in the School Gymnasium.
Following the events, the visitors and boys gathered
around the School Steps and the Headmaster welcomed the
guests and introduced to them, Mr. Archie McKinnon, Phys-
ical Director, Y.M.C.A., who was to present the prizes. Mr.
McKinnon spoke to the assembled group, particularly to the
boys on the unusual oDportunities they had for keeping phys-
ically fit at a School with such facilities as University School.
Mr. F. E. Winslow, O.B.E., Chairman of the Board of Govern-
ors, thanked Mr. McKinnon for the outstanding work he was
doing for the benefit of boys generally in the community and
also for his kindness and service to the School on so many
occasions. Mr. McKinnon then presented the prizes for the
Track events of the day and the Boxing, the finals of which
were held during the Easter Term.

Perram ( for 1947)
With five of last year's side available, prospects for the
season were promising. However, although the summer term
was rather longer than usual it was as busy as ever, and
the number of cricket fixtures actually carried through was
most disappointing. Bad weather delayed the opening, while
a week end holiday and rain forced the cancellation of two
In all, five matches were played, three of which were
won, one lost and one drawn. Four boys — Clifford, Cotter I,
Duke and Shaw averaged over ten runs per innings with the
bat, while Shaw and Mackenzie bore the brunt of the bowling.
The fielding was quite keen without being brilliant, the out-
standing feature being the very fast and accurate throwing
from cover by Cotter I. Shipley I kept wicket adequately and
his understanding with Cotter I resulted in many a "run out."
M. L. Clifford was elected captain and made a very prom-
ising beginning. D. V. Shaw assisted him as vice-captain.
Colours were awarded to Clifford and Shaw, and the official
team for the season was as follows: I\I. L. Clifford, D. V. Shaw,
A. C. Cotter, R. M. Duke, G. R. Shipley, J. W. Shipley, D. A.
Davison, J. B. Colquhoun, J. G. ?dyers, H. L. B. Mackenzie,
G. T. L. Read.
The Clayton Cup was won by Duke's team but only after
surviving competition of the keenest kind from the side cap-
tained by Shipley I.
The Colts played six games but were not successful in
winning any of them. The standard of play in the lower
school was not high.
The Prize Bat presented by the University School Incogs
to the best all round cricketer in the School was won by 'M. L.

School vs. Brentwood College
This game was played on the Sidney Recreation Ground
and resulted in a very even draw. Batting first the School
scored slowly until Cotter came in to hit up 28 in quick time.
Clifford declared at 76 for 6 and then Brentwood made a
creditable effort to make the runs but they were 8 short with
four wickets in hand at the end. Shaw had an off day with
the ball but the School fielding was quite good and definitely
superior to that of their opponents.

ever and three men were run out.

School vs. Brentwood College
The return match against Brentwood was played at home
and won by the School by 16 runs. The School fared badly
with the bat, Clifford being the only one to reach double
figures but Brentwood found the bowling of Mackenzie, who
took 5 for 8, too much for them. The School fielding was keen.

Day, not out
CLIFFORD — Much improved with the bat and is now developing
attacking strokes to go with a defence already quite sound.
Active in the field with good hands. Led the side with en-
thusiasm and has learnt much of the art of captaincy.
SHAW — By no means sound with either bat or ball but had some
very good days with both. Hits the ball hard but as yet lacks
both the defence and the patience to be a consistent scorer.
Very active in the field and had a successful season.
DUKE — Possessed few strokes but was always looking for runs,
running well between the wickets and frequently scoring
when others had failed. Keen and active in the field and pos-
sessed good hands. A useful member of the side.
SHIPLEY I — Again performed creditably behind the stumps. Alert
intelligent and possessed safe hands. Improved somewhat with
the bat but did not use his reach sufficiently, and hit across
COTTER I — Had a successful season as a hitter but was quite lack-
ing in defence. A very useful cover point from which position
his fast and accurate throwing resulted in many a "run out."
A fairly good catch.
MYERS — Never came off with the bat and developed a suicidal
"spoon" shot on the off. Developed into a useful bowler and
was the side's first change. A good fielder both in the air
and on the ground.
COLQUHOUN — A promising player. Possessed strokes, if rather
gentle ones, on the leg side and had a fair defence. Very
keen, and when he develops the necessary confidence should do
well. A bad judge of a run as yet. Is learning to bowl.
MACKENZIE — Enjoyed a successful season with the ball and main-
tained fair accuracy and length but without much "sting."
He can drive the over pitched ball but has no idea of back play.
Slow in the field.
DAVISON— Has the ability to bowl and will do so if he can develop
a vital interest and is willing to work. Lethargic in the field.
SHIPLEY II — Improved considerably all round. He is keen to learn
and should bowl if he perseveres. Requires confidence and
practice with the bat. Useful and extremely willing in the
READ — Nervous and lacking in confidence as yet, but he has cricket
in him and will yet do very well with the bat. A poor judge
of a run. Very fair in the field.

ner again for the second time was Burnett who covered the
course in h minute less than the previous year. He was a-
warded the Old Boys' Cup on Sports Day.
Wilson came in a good second. Barker I was the First
Junior and was awarded the Robertson Cup.
As usual proved a popular game this year.

occasion. The point winners were:
Burnett placed 2nd in the Jr. 440 yards
Shipley II 2nd in the Jr. 880 yds.
Shaw 2nd in the Jr. 220 yds.
3rd in the Broad Jump
Duke took 2nd place in both the 100 yds. & 220 yds.
Price came 3rd in 100 yds. & 220 yds.
Noel and Clifford showed much improvement in the mile
and 880 yds. respectively. Pollard, the youngest member of
the Team, did very well indeed considering that he was com-
peting against youths two and three years his senior.
This year the School were successful in arranging out-
side matches and there was considerable interest displayed
throughout the School.
A very weak "Victoria College team provided the opposition
in the first match, the School winning 8 — 0. Shaw and Duke
were the leading scorers.
For the second match Professor H. V. Warren brought
over a Faculty and Graduate team from the University of
B. C. in Vancouver. Some very even fast hockey was seen in
this game which was won by the School by the odd goal in
three. Both School goals came in the first half, Duke and
Clifford being the scorers. U.B.C. opened their account just
before half time and though they had a decided advantage
during the second half, they were unable to score again and
the School won 2 — 1.
Cotter I, who captained the side was very effective at
centre half, Bennett and ^Mackenzie did w-ell at back, while
Shipley I kept goal splendidly. Of the forwards, Duke was
the best. Mr. Cyril Jones very kindly refereed the game.

elected captain for the season while K. W. Bennett was chosen
to assist him as vice-captain. In addition to the above, only"
A. C. Cotter and J. VV. Shipley of the previous year's team
The 1st XV enjoyed a most successful season winning
seven of the twelve matches played, losing three and drawing
two. This record was particularly creditable in view of the
fact that Bennett, the vice-captain left at Christmas, and in
consequence the vital stand-off half position had to be filled.
Outstanding features contributing to the success were the
keenness and enthusiasm of the side, the dash and opportun-
ism of Duke in the centre, the fine defensive play of Bennett,
the all round effectiveness of Shipley I, and the very solid
work put in by the second row. Cotter I and Shipley II.
Colours were awarded to R. M. Duke, A. C. Cotter, J. W.
Shipley and G. R. Shipley, the remainder of the team being
made up of: D. A. Davison, D. V. Shaw, E. P. Rimmer, M. L.
Clifford, H. C. Burnett, E. J. Field, D. L. Taylor, D. K. Tresize,
R. G. Pollard, R. I. Strang, and D. I. Hogarth.
The Colts ranging in weight from 110 lbs to 130 lbs.,
played matches against both Shawnigan Lake School and
Brentwood College. Both games were won quite easily and
some good talent was observed. Myers, who captained the

FIRST FIFTEEN MATCHES
School vs. Oak Bay High School
The School opened the season at home on Oct. 23 against
Oak Bay High School who won a very even game by a goal, a
penalty goal and a try (11 pts. to a penalty goal and two
tries (9 pts.).
The ^chool scored all their points in the first half. Ship-
ley I opened the scoring early in the game when he was suc-
cessful with a penalty from dead in front. A little later Duke
gathered a wild kick by the opposition and ran through on his
own from half way to score between the posts. Shaw missed
the easy conversion. Cotter I added to the School lead when
he picked up a loose ball and ran in on his own. Shaw failed
to convert. The High School then attacked and just before
half time opened their account with a try by their right wing.
The try was converted and the School led 9 — 5 at the interval.
The High School had a decided advantage during the
second half. The School seemed to tire somewhat and there
was some very faulty defensive play on the left wing. After
a period of fairly even play the High School were successful
with a penalty from a difficult angle, and a little later forced
the School to touch down twice. At this stage Bennett was
prominent for the School, his tackling being of a high order.
Towards the end it was all High School whose superiority in
weight was beginning to tell, and shortly before no-side they
obtained the winning try at the flag.
For the School Bennett was outstanding behind the scrum:
but for his excellent defensive play the School would have
been overrun in the last ten minutes. Duke had a good match
and Rimmer made a promising beginning. Among the for-
wards Shipley I was a tower of strength, while Taylor and
Shipley H turned in useful games.
School vs. R.C.N.-R.C.A.F. College
The School playing at home proved too strong for a
R.C.N.-R.C.A.F. side winning by a goal and five tries (20 pts.)
to a penalty goal (3 pts.).
Exerting pressure from the opening whistle the School
soon opened the scoring when Shaw took Bennett's pass to
cross at the flag. He failed to convert his own try. A little
later Shipley H was quick to seize a loose ball close to the
line and force his way over for Shaw to add the extra points.
A little later Shipley I crossed far out but Shaw failed to con-
vert and the School led 11 — at the interval.
The College pressed for a period after half time but their
outsides were not together and they seldom looked dangerous;
their only success being fi-om a penalty given against the
School for offside. Towards the end the School attacked
strongly and in the best movement of the day Duke took Rim-
mer's pass to run forty yards through the centre to score
between the posts. Shaw missed the easy kick. A little later
Duke made much ground on the left wing before giving to
Shaw who ran in unopposed but again failed with the kick.
The final try came when Bennett, who ran with great deter-
mination throughout, burst through the centre ond ran to
within five yards of the line before being tackled by the full
back. From the resulting scramble Rimmer, who was up in
support, won a race for the ball to score a try which Shipley I
just failed to goal from a wide angle. Bennett. Duke and
were the best of the School backs. Shipley I led the forwards
who kicked badly and heeled slowly.
School vs. Victoria High School
A hard but rugged game played at home resulted in a win
for he School by the only try scored.
The first half was keenly contested with the School having
slightly the better of the game, but apart from Bennett's out-
standing try, was without incident. This try came when, fol-
lowing a scrum twenty-five yards from the High School line,
Bennett took the ball from his scrum help and going on the
blind side, ran to within ten yards of the line where he was
finally tackled. Regaining his feet immediately he took the
ball at his feet the rest of the way in the face of severe op-
position to score what proved to be the winning try.
The High School had rather the better of the second half
and the School were forced to touch down more than once.
The School however had their chances and had Shaw accepted
a wild kick by the opposition their margin would have been
Bennett, who was very determined both in attack and de-
fence was outstanding behind the scrum while Shipley I was
easily the pick of the forwards.
School i'5. Brentwood College
Playing away the School were well beaten by Brentwood
by two goals, two penalty goals, and two tries (22 pts.) to one
goal and a try (8 pts.). The game was played at a rare pace
throughout and while not as skilfully played as matches of
previous years, lacked little in respect of the keenness of the
football and the spirit in which it was played.
Brentwood had rather the better of the first half ter-
ritorially but at half time had only scored one try while the
School had a goal and a try to their credit and led 8 — 3. The
School opened the scoring; when some faulty passing in the
Brentwood centre gave Duke the barest of chances. Snapping
up a dropped pass he ran sixty yards through the centre to
score close to the posts; a splendid individual effort. Shipley
I goaled and the School led by five points. A little later Brent-
wood opened their account a forward try being obtained far
out, the kick failing. Although beaten forward the School
defence was adequate and the work of Bennett unusually out-
standing. His tackling was a joy to watch and McMahon, the
effective Brentwood outside half was fully held in check.
Pollard, filling in at full back for the School was severely
tested and stood up very well under severe pressure. Shortly
before half time the School increased their lead v/hen Shaw
scored the best try of the day at the flag. From a line just
outside the Brentwood twenty-five, Clifford got the ball avv'ay
Bennett. Rjmmer and Duke both huddled and Shaw finished
the movement with a fine burst of speed to cross at the corner.
Shipley I failed to convert and the School led 8 — 3.
Shortly after the restart, disaster overtook the School in
the shape of two penalties given for offside directly under
the posts. Both came as a result of weak clearances by School
backs and both were goaled. From these penalties the School
never recovered and Brentwood dominated the second half. In
the last fifteen minutes two goals and a try were obtained and
Brentwood won 22 — 8. The Brentwood forwards were far
faster and heavier than the School pack who gave a coura-
geous display but could not match their opponents either in
the "tight" or the "loose." As a result the Brentwood backs
had constant possession during the second half and the School
outsides wore themselves out in gallant defence. Bennett
was excellent throughout, time and again he saved the School
when all seemed lost, and his effective and courageous play
will be long remembered. Duke and Shaw did many good
things and the outsides as a group held their own. The for-
wards were overwhelmed by bigger and faster men but the
whole side played with spirit and never gave up. A grand
School vs. R.C.N.-R.C.A.F. College
This game was played at the Royal Canadian Naval and
Royal Canadian Air Force College and con by the home side
by two goals and two tries (16 pts.) to a try (3 pts.). The
School were five regulars short through injury but gave a
fair display and had more of the game than the score would
The College, well served by their halves, scored a goal
and a try in the first half and had by far the better of the
play. The School handling and passing were weak, and there
was too much hesitant tackling in the centre.
Immediately after the restart the College went further
ahead when some very bad running by Price resulted in a try
close to the posts. Goal was kicked. The School then came
to life and had the better of the game. After a period of
steady pressure, Shaw being particularly prominent, this
player accepted a pass from Bennett, and running with deter-
mination scored at the flag. Shipley I failed to convert. Just
before the end the College obtained the final try which was
unconverted. The School, while not good enough to win, had
the luck of the game against them, particularly when Price
appeared to have won a race for the ball in the College in-goal
and a touch dov.-n was awarded.
School vs. Shawnigax Lake School
Playing away the School defeated Shawnigan Lake School
by 3 goals and a try (18 pts.) to (0).
For some time play was very even but mid way through
the half the School opened their account when Rimmer found
an opening. Dashing through, he gave to Duke who ran from
half way to score between the posts for Shipley I to convert.
A little later Bennett blocked a kick near the Shawiiigan line
and won a race fro the ball to put the School further ahead.
Shipley I failed to convert. Just before half time Bennett
scored his second try- — a sure determined run through the
centre putting him over between the posts for Shipley I to add
the extra points.
The second half was much more even. Shawnigan, whose
forwards packed well and heeled quickly, gave a good display
and threatened several times. In addition they were awarded
a penalty under the School posts but the kick was missed. The
only try of the second half came when Duke kicked up a loose
ball and sped down the wing to cross at the flag and score
between the posts. Shipley I kicked his third goal, and the
School won 18 — 0. Tne backs while good individually, were
not well together, and Shaw was badly neglected during the
School vs. Oak Bay High School
This was the second game of the season between the sides
and this time victory went to the School by a goal and tvs'o
penalty goals (11 pts.) to three tries (9 pts.).
Shortly after the start the High School were penalized for
offside and Shipley I dropped a good gooal. For Fome time
play was very even but neither set of backs combined well.e
However before half time the School line had been crossed
twice — both tries resulting from poor defensive plays in their
twenty-five. Neither try was converted. The School replied
through Cotter who dribbled through following a line out in
the Oak Bay twenty-fiive. This was a good individual effort,
a just reward for keen play. Shipley I added the extra points,
and the School led 8 — 6 at half time.
Play during the second half was definitely in Oak Bay's
favour but their backs finished badly and the School were
saved by good tackling and defensive kicking by Bennett. The
School threatened however and a fine run by Duke only just
failed. Another penalty against the High School gave Shipley
I his second penalty goal and ended the scoring as far as the
School was concerned. Just before no-side the High School
scored their final try but the kick, though from an easy angle,
was missed, and the School won 11 — 9. Shipley I was easily
the best of the School forwards, and his kicking was the de-
ciding factor in a very even game. Cotter I and Pollard were
also prominent in the pack. Behind the scrum Bennett was,
as usual, a tower of strength. In the closing stages when the
pressure was keen his defensive kicking was invaluable. Shaw
was starved and had little opportunity. Davison, at full back,
was not happy, and was most shaky under pressure.
School vs. Victoria College (Intermediate)
An extremely high and bitter north wind ruined what
promised to be an excellent game.
The first half was evenly contested with play largely of
a forward nature. Duke made one or two nice runs through
the centre, and from one of these, Taylor who followed up
fast, was able to gain possession and throw himself over to
score a try which Shipley I failed to improve.
The two sides tried hard to play football after half time
but conditions were too difficult, and the game was rarely
better than an evenly matched scramble. The College equal-
ized before the end, a forward scoring far out but neither side
looked like scoring again and a 3 — 3 draw resulted.
Shipley I, Cotter I and Taylor were prominent among the
School forwards, while of the backs Duke alone ever looked
THE RUGBY XV
School vs. Brentwood College
This game was played at home under apalling weather
and ground conditions and resulted in a scoreless draw. Play
was entirely of a forward nature and some very strenuous
work was put in by both sides. Behind the scrum the School
gave the impression that under decent conditions they would
be more effective.
Play during the first half was slightly in the School's
favour, while after half time the ball seldom left the area
between the twenty-five yard line.
Both sides tried their level best, and with some success,
to make a game of it.
The Shipley brothers and Cotter I were outstanding for
School vs. Brentwood College
Played on the School grounds this game was as usual
contested with rare spirit, and won by the School by two tries
(6 pts.) to 0.
The ball was a difficult one, but no rain fell during the
game and some three quarter work was seen.
Early in the game Duke the School captain injured his
ankle and was of little use in attack thereafter; he defended
pluckily however retiring to the wing mid way through the
The School exerted pressure from the start and although
the Brentwood line was not seriuosly in danger some promis-
ing movements in which Shipley I, Burnett and Taylor par-
ticipated were noticed. The first real thrill came mid way
through the first half when a Brentwood centre went clean
through the middle on his own and beat Davison the School
full back, only to be tackled by Burnett and Cotter I who came
from nov.'here to save the day. The School primed again how-
ever and following some keen play in the Brentwood twenty-
five Clifford tried to force his way over following a scrum
near the line. This attempt failed but a little later, from a
similar scrum Clifford whipped the ball out to Rimmer and
Shaw accepted a scoring pass to cross the line offer a short
run. Shipley I failed to kick goal and the School had to be
content with a lead of three points at half time.
After the breather play was largely confined to midfield.
what advantage there was lying with the School whose backs
huddled better than their opponents, and were more lively.
Burnett was very prominent at this stage his play being
spirited and eflfective. The School forwards were good in the
"loose" and several good rushes were seen. From one of these,
w^hich was led by Shipley I, Burnett was able to beat the de-
fence to the ball and to score near the flag. Shipley I failed
to improve this try and the School won 6 — 0.
Without exception the School had played vigorous football
and they were at least six points better on the day's play.
Shipley I, Cootter, and Shipley II were outstanding among a
pack who fully held their heavier opponents in every phase of
forward play. Behind the scrum Rimmer handled the three
quarters particularly Burnett who gave a most promising dis-
play, did some good things.
School vs. Old Boys (Victoria)
The Victoria Old Boys were no match for the School who
had no trouble in winning by two goals and five tries (25 pts. )
From the start the School exerted pressure and with their
marked superiority behind the scrum it was evident that the
Old Boys' defence would be severely tested. Shipley I opened
the scoring for the School, and before half time Shaw had
crossed after a moveme-nt in which Rimmer and Bennett par-
ticipated, while Gilbert,, who had an excellent match at right
wing three qcarter. scored on two occasions. The score might
well have been greater at this time but for the excellent tack-
ling of Bryn-Jones. The Old Boys' full back.
After half time, play w^as rather more even, but the School
were always on top, and before the end had scored tries
through Taylor, Burnett and Shaw. Shipley I had an off day
converting but two of the seyen tries scored, and the School
School vs. Old Boys (Vancouver)
This game was played on the main ground at the Uni-
versity of B. C. in Vancouver, and won by the School by two
goals (10 pts.) to three tries (9 pts.).
The Old Boys had by far the better of the play during
the first fifteen minutes. Williams who was impressive at out-
side half went through on his own to score the first try be-
tween the posts while a little later Alan LeMarquand scored
to finish a three-quarter movement. The School opened their
account when Price finished off a movement in which there
was some nice short passing by both forwards and backs. Ship-
ley I goaled from dead in frone and as neither Old Boys' try
was converted the Old Boys led 6 — 5 at half time.
After the restart the Old Boys went further ahead when
Corry scored at the flag. The try was not converted. Play
was very ragged for the rest of the game but shortly before
the end the School backs produced one of their few^ decent
movements of the day and Duke scored for Shipley I to goe.'.
from a fairly wide angle. In winning by a single point the
School were far from impressive and actually fortunate to
win. The Old Boys had the better of the game and poor place
kicking lost them the match.
DUKE (Captain and Centre Three-quarter) — An improved player
whose elusiveness and great speed brought him many a try in
the centre. Possessed fair hands, but his passing was erratic
and his kicking weak. Not a good defender but fairly effect-
ive despite his lack of weight. A very keen and enthusiastic
DAVISON (Full Back)— A fair kick and a useful tackle, but far too
slow in gathering, and weak in face of forwards with the ball
at their feet. Requires another year's experience.
CLIFFORD (Scrum Half) — Had a successful season at the base of
the scrum when his play, if somewhat deliberate, was always
intelligent. Possessed good hands but his kicking was very
weak indeed. Considerably improved in defence. Has a sound
knowledge of the game and is a player of real promise.
RIMMER (Stand off Half) — Avigorous and courageous player. His
hands were not good, but he was a fair passer and quite un-
selfish. A weak kick, but a very depedanble tackle and the
best of the backs in this department.
FIELD (Wing Three-quarter) — New to the game but developed con-
siderably. Possessed a useful hand off and ran well on oc-
casion. Hesitant in defence, and somewhat lacking both in
determination and condition.
BURNETT (Centre Three-quarter) — Came on greatly toward the
close of the season and is a player of promise. Possessed fair
hands and a useful turn of speed. Improved defensively and
is learning to kick with judgment. Has keenness and ability
and lacks experience only.
SHAW (Wing Three-quarter) — Played both as a centre and as a
wing, but was more convincing in the latter position. A strong
determined runner he finished movements well. He combined
poorly, holding on far too long, and apart from his kicking
his defensive play was very bad.
TAYLOR — Filled the "hook" position with success. Played the game
intelligently and with obvious enjoyment. Possessed good
hands. A very steady consistent player.
TRESIZE — A hard working front row man. Active in the "loose,"
a good tackle, and vastly improved generally.
SHIPLEY I — Fulfilled the promise shown last year and developed
into a splendid forward. Excelled in the line out where his
great height and sure hands were used to advantage. The
most consistent kicker, both place and drop, to represent the
School for years. Played keen and intelligent football throug-
out the season and never disappointed.
HOGARTH — New to the game but came on considerably and did
well at "break." Tackled well and always gave of his best
COTTER I — A fine forward whose work in the second row was of a
high order. A great pusher in the "tight," full of dash and well
directed effort in the "loose," and very useful defensively.
Played the game in a splendid spirit. His place will indeed
be hard to fill.
SHIPLEY II — Another excellent forward who demonstrated the
value of honest push in the second row. A steady and depend-
able player of great promise.
POLLARD — An extremely effective back row forward of whom all
too little was seen owing to injuries. Vigorous, determined,
and the best tackier on the side. Played occasionally at full
back and gave creditable displays full of courage and judg-
STRANG — A promising forward with a good knowledge of the game.
Rather slow in the "loose," and deficient in defence as yet, but
played intelligently and unselfishly at all times.
THE CADET CORPS
The following appointments were approved by the Head-
C. Capt. ------- A. C. Cotter
C Lieut. ------- p. Paterson
C/Lieut. ------- G. R. Shipley
C/C.S.M. ------- W. J. Shipley
C C.Q.M.S. ------ H. Mackenzie
The official strength of the Corps this year was 50. By
incorporating an additional 11 who were under the age limit
we had two sizeable platoons and a Band of 12.
During the early part of the year much pressure was
brought to bear on the group activities. Five signallers were
successful in obtaining their junior Morse certificates togther
with a cheque in the sum of $5.00. Cpl. Hogarth is to be con-
gratulated warmly on the untiring efforts he made with the
St. John Ambulance class. Nine of his ten passed the require-
ments and were presented with certificates in due course.
The responsibilities of the Knots and Lashings v;ere
undertaken by Capt. A. C. Cotter, who proved himself to be
an extremely capable officer in every phase of Cadet work.
J. Shipley is to commended for the efficient manner in which
he fulfilled the difficult positions of C.S.^NL and P.T. Instructor.
As such he was most dependable.
Our 42nd Annual Inspecion was held on May 3rd and we
were privileged to have as our Inspecting Officer Col. T. E.
Snow, whose father had carried out a similar duty 88 years
ago. The latter, despite his years, made a special effort to
be present on this occasion — a gesture that was more than
appreciated by those present. The Ceremonial Company and
Rifle Drill were of a very high order and much interest was
shown in the group activities. As a Corps we were rated 959^
efficient. This high mark was attained only through the com-
bined efforts of all.
The Band, under Sergt. Duke once again proved itself in-
dispensable and a large amount of the success vouchsafed the
Corps must go to those members, who with their instruments,
enhanced the marching precision of the Corps.
Cadet Discharge Certificates are now available. These
are primarily intended for those who are leaving us and who
intend to join one of the branches of His Majesty's Forces.
Since they indicate the length of service in the Corps and the
work covered they should help to curtail much of the pre-
liminary foot-slogging and rifle drill that normally await the

Recreational shooting, which started late in 1946, was
carried out extensively this year and as a result 33 Cadets
were awarded their 1st Class Badge, 5 their Expert and 2 their
Sniper. This type of training, laid down by N.D.H.Q. Ottawa,
provides each cadet with a greater number of rounds and in
addition makes it possible for him to win a different badge as
each category is successfully completed. In the writer's
opinion it is an excellent course for the beginner but lacks
finesse when it comes to exacting the best from the more ex-
The results of last year's Shooting in the D.C.R.A. were
not received until September and so could not be inserted in
the School ^Magazine. Of the two teams entered, the "A" Team
an average of 919^ came 4th, in B. C. out of 42. Of the 580
schools firing across Canada we were placed 112th. The
scores showed much keen competition. Had our average been
bettered by 1.25% we would have atteined 1st place in B. C.
and been in the 80's for all Canada. We must keep on trying
harder. Our "B"Team averaged 87.967r. This year we
averaged 91.25%.^ Second class medals were claimed for and
received by Hogarth, [Mackenzie. Shaw and Shipley II for hav-
ing averaged 90^^ or over in the 3 shoots. ]\Iost unfortun-
ately a dislocated shoulder prevented A. Cotter, one of the
cainstays of the Team, from participating in the third shoot.
We have as yet received no official results for the R.il.C.
Shoot for April 1947, when the best ten scores out of twenty
brought us an average of 94%.
Old Boys will learn with regret that the Cadet Author-
ities have withdrawn all the B.S.A. No. 8 rifles and substituted
the Long Branch No. 7. The new rifle is heavier, longer and
boasts a bolt and magazine. From an accuracy point of view
it cannot be beaten, althouKh there are some who would have
it otherwise. Some very excellent scores have been made,
particularly by Davison, Mackenzie, Cotter I and Shipley II.
This year the Harvey INIemorial Rifle was won by H. Mac-
kenzie, the Harvey Challenge Cup for the highest score in the
D.C.R.A. by D. Davison and the Don Braidwood Cup for the
best Intermediate by R. I. Kingham, who was the best Junior
last year and who incidentally narrowly missed a place on the
